Eastside 10k for DEWC


Registration is now open for this year’s Eastside 10k on September 16, 2017! Last year we raised over $11,000 for the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, and this year, we’re aiming for $20 000. To run for DEWC, follow these steps:

  1. Register to run and create an account. Use our discount code for 10% off: 17DEWC10 (in the field marked Enter Promo Code or Gift Code)
  2. Then, set up your personalized pledge page. Go to Menu in the top right corner > Share Pledge Page (under Fundraising).
  3. On the right side of your page, click EDIT PAGE and make any necessary adjustments to your pledge goal, adding text, and adding an image to your page. Don’t forget to mention that you’re running for DEWC, and all the reasons why supporters should donate to your cause!
  4. (*Important!*) Click the field beside Select a preferred charity provider and select “The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre”.
  5. Once you are finished updating your page click SAVE UPDATED PLEDGE INFORMATION.
  6.  Share your page, and get fundraising! We’ve also created a fundraising toolkit, which includes the banner shown above to put up on your own social media, brochures for advertisement and more information, and a letter to help with fundraising requests. 

Not a runner? No problem. Your support is still welcomed and appreciated. To donate, either use the link on our website, or go to our Eastside 10k donation page and enter in your amount. We thank you for your support!

Be sure to tell all of your friends (runners and non-runners) about this event, get them to help fund-raise, run, or donate. Your support helps us provide essential programs and services to the women of the Downtown Eastside. 

For additional help, this infographic runs through the above steps. If you’re interested in promoting this run for DEWC at your workplace, business, or community, get in touch at engagement@dewc.ca
